BucketBarrow on BBC1 DIY SOS 2020
Hard work and great fun at DIY SOS Big Build. Amazing to meet and work with this incredible team all donating their time and efforts rebuilding a family home in just 9 days.
BucketBarrow helps on BBC TV DIY SOS
In nine days a home was gutted and completely rebuilt by the amazing team of volunteers at the #DIYSOSBigBuild in Bromley, England. This enabled a very deserving family to gain a home that meets the needs of their two year old son who suffers from a very rare lung condition. They can now do what so many of us take for granted, share time together, as a family, in their home. Congratulations to the hundreds of trades professionals, suppliers, community members, #DIYSOSBigBuild Purple Shirts

Making Life on a Permaculture Property Easier
"Running a permaculture farm is hard work. We do as much as we can by hand. So when we see a useful tool that can help us save time and energy it really catches our eye. We recently got our hands on a new Aussie designed and owned product call the BucketBarrow. Not only is it the easiest barrow to move that I've ever used, the bucket system makes it so incredibly versatile that it has become one of our most used tools. Getting material into difficult places is now easy. Moving a variety of material and tools, simple!"
It means a great deal to us to receive this amazing feedback from Brendan and the team at What The Green because these are people who truly live by their values. Their not for profit company manufactures quality, sustainable products like rice husk briquettes and coconut husk BBQ briquettes out of what would otherwise be waste materials. 100% of profits are then directed to building sustainable farms for communities in developing countries. On the home front they have developed a fabulous permaculture farm where they organically grow and raise a huge proportion of the food they eat and the materials they use.

Growing Food and Community with the Grantham Gardeners
The URBAN88 has been busy helping Carol and volunteers at the Sustainability Hub and Community Gardens at the Grantham Heritage Park in Seven Hills, Sydney. Carol took the time to share this fabulous feedback:
"I got to give my BucketBarrow a run today at the back of the community garden. We have been planting in loads of native and exotic perennials and covering the area with mulch. The BucketBarrow buckets make it so much easier to redistribute the mulch - no more awkwardly taking out handfuls to cover the planted out areas!"

Making Harvest Time Easier
Tesorino Farm in North Gidgegannup, Western Australia is owned by husband and wife team Dave and Alison, both experienced horticulturalists, who grow fresh seasonal vegetables and make delicious produce to sell direct to their customers.
Dave recently contacted the BucketBarrow team to share this harvest time update:
"The (asparagus) season is just getting going at the moment ... As the weather warms, we will be inundated with the spears up everywhere. It takes hours of work when in full swing. No more heaving a container along as you pick, with it getting heavier as you go.
The BucketBarrow fits along the asparagus rows (unlike an ATV) and it's a breeze to use each bucket. It has saved a lot of back breaking work."
We are grateful to Dave and Alison for making time to share how our URBAN88 narrow wheelbarrows with their BucketBarrow System of 4 strong Buckets and 1 x multi-purpose Scoop are making their asparagus harvesting season so much easier.
